collapse sub-thread?

Greetings.

I know that ESC-t will collapse an entire thread.

And I know that ESC-d will mark a subthread (an article and all of its
children) as read.

Is there a way that I can collapse a sub-thread in the header window?

Best working solutuion for mime? macro? etc.

Hi all.

I'm a new user of slrn and I'd like to ask if someone reading this would
point me in the best direction for a solution to mime posts recieved in
slrn.

It could be a simple as switching on a default marco. I've been fidling
with slrnmime.sl from 2010.

What are you all using, that works for you?

Can anyone verify signatures, either GPG/OPENSSL, when posted as mime
messages?

Any reply is appreciated. Please set me off looking in the right
direction.

Oliver

Hilite groups with new msgs?

Hello! Is there currently a way to tell slrn to highlight groups that
received new messages after I left them?

IOW, in group display mode, after checking for new articles (with [g])
I'd like to see a character beside each group whose "High water mark"
has changed since the last time I quit that group.

Is something like this already feasible, or would it require hacking the
source code?

TIA,
DN

slrnpull continuously disconnecting

Hi, I errouneously posted this initially as a reply to a previous mail
with a different subject, so here comes again.

I've also been able to solve the problem by scoring the message-id of
the 'offending'(?) article to -9999, but still I'm curious to know what
exactly causes the problem described below.

Trying to pull in from usenet the news group sci.electronics.design,
slrnpull consistently at a certain posting disconnects like this:

---------------------------------

Is it the dot ('.') in the penultimate line that makes slrnpull think
there's a header coming, making it panic and disconnect when there is
none?

I've looked up RFC 822, RFC 850 and RFC 1036, but nowhere I've seen the
dot ('.') appear as a control character.

So why does slrnpull disconnect when it encounters a single dot with no
header following?

Thanks,

John

pre 1.0.3-10, K for scoring INOP

Good morning, 

it appears that in the current development version the K shortcut for
scoring does not work or not work by default. 

Thanks for confirming. I can “work“ like that.

Have a nice week-end, all

Thanks for the suggestion. However, it does not seem to make
any difference.

If I do

slrn -h snews://news.forteinc.com

it says it can't resolve the host.  But it will connect if I do it
normally.

It turns out that it's been connecting to 69.16.179.43,
which resolves to forte.iad.easynews.com . So I tried
changing to that.

However, if I try 

slrn -h snews://forte.iad.easynews.com

it starts the connection, but then gives me a bunch of tls 
status messages, and then prompts for a username and
password, the same as when I tried to put snews:// in the
"server" line in .jnewsrc.  If I enter my username and
password I get a bunch more messages, netstat says it's using
nntps, it exchanges a bunch of packets, then says it's checking
news, then craps out without saying why.  This is exactly the same
as what I got before.

So I will repeat the question. Has anyone ever successfully
used slrn with SSL, and if so, how did you do it?

Is there something wrong with version 1.0.1 with S-lang
version 2.2.4?  Does the "External programs" need something
more in addition to "+ssl" ?  Is there any other documentation
I should be looking at?

Or is ssl support just a figment of someone's imagination,
and I'm wasting my time trying to get this to work because
there simply is not any real support for SSL in slrn?

Thanks.

Bart.

Can'


     I've used SLRN for many years on OpenVMS.  I now want to
 use it on my home system (preferably Mint Linux, but it could
 be Fedora or Windows 7).  I've used GrabIT on Windows with SSL,
 and it works.  I've tried Xpn and Thunderbird on Linux with
 SSL, and they work, but I don't like the interface or other
 features.  I want to use slrn, but I can not figure out how to
 get it to use SSL.

     I've been to the web site. It says my version of slrn is
 built with SSL: but there are no real instructions anywhere
 that actually say how to enable it.  I've searched through the
 archives on the web site, and have found nothing useful. I've
 done web searches, and can't find anyone who has said they've
 gotten this to work.

     I did eventually find a copy of README.SSL, bundled with
 the Windows version of slrn that comes in a ZIP file, but it
 doesn't give any information other than adding "snews://" 
 somewhere. I've tried every variation I can think of, putting 
 this in the .slrnrc file for server or nntpauth,  and nothing 
 will get it to switch to SSL.  I've tried putting it in the
 NNTPSERVER environmental variable, but that causes errors 
 connecting. I've tried putting the port number at the end of 
 the server name, and that seems to make it start to use SSL, 
 but it can never authenticate or connect properly. 

     My method of determining this is as follows.

     The version of slrn I have on Linux is this:

lederman <at> dc5700-SFF ~ $ slrn --version
slrn 1.0.1
S-Lang Library Version: 2.2.4
Compiled on: Oct 23 2013 23:23:08
Operating System: Linux

COMPILE TIME OPTIONS:
 Backends: +nntp +slrnpull +spool
 External programs / libs: +canlock +inews +ssl +uudeview +iconv
 Features: +decoding +emphasized_text +end_of_thread +fake_refs +gen_msgid
    -grouplens -msgid_cache +piping +rnlock +spoilers -strict_from
 Using 64 bit integers for article numbers.

DEFAULTS:
 Default server object:     nntp
 Default posting mechanism: nntp

     As I understand it, the "+ssl" indicates it can use SSL.

     When I run slrn, I use netstat to look at the connections:

lederman <at> dc5700-SFF ~ $ netstat -a | grep tcp
tcp        0      0 *:netbios-ssn           *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 dc5700-SFF:domain       *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 *:ssh                   *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 localhost:ipp           *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 *:microsoft-ds          *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 192.168.1.39:58955      69.16.179.43:nntp       ESTABLISHED

     You can see the protocol listed is nntp.

     If I run GrabIT on Windows (or Xpn on Linux), this changes
 to NNTP like this (Thunderbird appears to use https):

Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State
TCP    0.0.0.0:49157          Lederman-PC7:0         LISTENING
TCP    127.0.0.1:23401        Lederman-PC7:0         LISTENING
TCP    192.168.1.27:139       Lederman-PC7:0         LISTENING
TCP    192.168.1.27:51331     69.16.179.43:nntps     ESTABLISHED

     As mentioned before, if I put the port name at the end of
 the server name, as in 

news.forteinc.com:563

     in the NNTPSERVER name, with or without snews:// at the
 beginning, I see nntp change to nntps, but the authentication
 process never completes: or else it prompts me for a username
 and password instead of using the authentication information in
 .slrnrc, and I get a lot of status messages, but the connection
 never works.

     I don't think I'm asking for too much to request an actual
 example of how to set up NNTPSERVER and the variables in
 .jnewsrc that works to set up a connection with SSL.  Since at
 least three other news readers on two different operating
 systems make what appear to be SSL connections to my news
 provider, I'm reasonably certain that the problem is not with
 the news server.

     Has anyone done this successfully, and can you please post 
 instructions or point me to a web site that actually says how
 to set this up?

     Thanks.

     Bart.

date in index

Is it possible to configure slrn to show the dates of messages in the
index? Searches turned up nothing. It might be buried in the docs but, if
so, I missed it.

Any pointers appreciated.

slrn 1.0.2 IPv6 not working on Solaris

Hi,

I'm trying to use a IPv6 newsserver on solaris, which doesn't work though.

Seems like configure is not picking up getaddrinfo() support without the
right libraries (-lsocket -lnsl according to the getaddrinfo manpage):

$ ./configure
...
checking for getaddrinfo... no
checking for getnameinfo... no
...

$ cat config.log
...
configure:8400: checking for getaddrinfo
configure:8400: cc -o conftest -g   conftest.c  >&5
"conftest.c", line 94: warning: statement not reached
Undefined                       first referenced

 getaddrinfo                         conftest.o
 ld: fatal: symbol referencing errors
 configure:8400: $? = 2
..

Adding LIBS='-lsocket -lnsl' fixes this:

$ ./configure LIBS='-lsocket -lnsl'
...
ecking for getaddrinfo... yes
checking for getnameinfo... yes
...

but building slrn still fails:

$ gmake

Seems like it's not using $LIBS when linking the binary?
